    I have a fresh build of 11.04 that somehow has gotten into a configuration where no window applications will open when using sudo or gksu, including synaptic. I get the following error:

    [all variants] Re: Nomachine on ubuntu 10.10 very slow

    I recently upgraded to Natty and am experiencing this same problem. Before I jump through all the hoops, do you suspect that these steps will solve the problem on Natty as well?

    [ubuntu] Re: MPD problems

    Try setting

    [ubuntu] Re: udisks-daemon and SATA errors

    Note that smartctl doesn't report anything wrong with the drive, so it seems more likely that it's a controller, or a cable, or something like that. I'm currently running udisks --monitor-detail to...

    [ubuntu] udisks-daemon and SATA errors

    Having just installed Lucid I've been keeping an eye on my system log to make sure all is well, and I started getting frequent SATA disk errors on one of my archive drives shortly after the...
  6. [ubuntu] LAN transfers impacted by internet traffic?

    I've been using Ubuntu for a long time, so this caught me by surprise.

    I have a music server that I use to stream FLAC files to a Squeezebox and also do some light coding, internet browsing,...
  7. Re: HOWTO: electricsheep screensaver with gnome-screensaver! (Dapper)

    Note that there are no Jaunty packages yet...are you using the version from the PPA? Can you post what it says when you add --debug 1 to the command-line options?

  8. [ubuntu] Unmounting one USB device screws up the rest

    I have a music server that has 4 500 gb drives attached. Two of the drives are internal SATA drives, the other two are external USB drives. fstab:

  9. [ubuntu] Cannot Mount Volume (HAL/DBus) when remotely logged in

    I have a headless Hardy 64-bit machine that I use as my music server (Squeezecenter, etc) that I'd like to plug my ipod into to transfer some files. I use nomachine as my remote server/client, which...
  10. Re: howto set your background to electric sheep screensaver

    I'd uninstall that version and install the new one :D

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=826554

    Uninstall the old one first, as there may be conflicts otherwise.
  11. Re: First Really New Electric Sheep Client in Two Years

    Are you sure you're running the version from the launchpad repository? The version in the standard ubuntu repositories is very old and takes much longer to download sheep.
  12. Re: First Really New Electric Sheep Client in Two Years

    Here's the Launchpad page - add the listed repositories to synaptic and then you'll be ready to install!

    --Erik
  13. Re: HOWTO: electricsheep screensaver with gnome-screensaver! (Dapper)

    Note that there is now a Launchpad repository with binaries for the flam3 and electricsheep packages. Simply add this line to sources.list (or to the repository list in synaptic)

    Re: New Electric Sheep Client, 2.7 beta

    Note that there is now a Launchpad repository for the electricsheep and flam3 packages! Simply add this apt source to sources.list or using the synaptic package manager:

  15. Re: First Really New Electric Sheep Client in Two Years

    Note: I did manage to get the flam3 package compiled with the proper optimization flags. Please update your flam3 packages as soon as possible to take advantage of these optimizations!

  16. Re: First Really New Electric Sheep Client in Two Years

    Two more updates for those of you interested:

    First, the flam3 package was being build with -O2 instead of -O3 - this has been fixed, and these executables will render frames faster than the...
  17. Re: First Really New Electric Sheep Client in Two Years

    I just updated the package again - the gconf changes weren't being applied appropriately. electricsheep_2.7b5-0ubuntu1~ppa25 should be a fully functional package.

    --Erik
  18. Re: First Really New Electric Sheep Client in Two Years

    Looks like I missed another file for the installation. I'll get that built tomorrow...check for updates in the morning. It'll be ~ppa24.
  19. Re: First Really New Electric Sheep Client in Two Years

    Make sure you're using version ~ppa22 - I didn't want to install multiple copies of the electricsheep exe all over the system (like in /usr/lib/xscreensaver) and I didn't realize that that was the...
  20. Re: First Really New Electric Sheep Client in Two Years

    Correct. The etch repos has 2.6.8, I believe, and the one in the Launchpad repos is 2.7b5.



    If you're running this from the terminal, hit 'f' while the mplayer window is selected, and it'll go...
  21. Re: First Really New Electric Sheep Client in Two Years

    Note: These are still works in progress. I've identified a few issues with the gconf keys that I've just fixed, as well as some other issues, so there will be numerous builds over the next few days....
  22. Re: First Really New Electric Sheep Client in Two Years

    It works - but your problem is that you expect it to provide frames larger than 800x600. The frames are rendered one at a time and sent to a central server, which compiles the movies and sends them...
  23. Re: First Really New Electric Sheep Client in Two Years

    You could potentially convert them, but I think you'd be better off just enjoying the new feed (or concatentating them together yourself into movies, etc.) It'd be an awful lot of work and there'd...
  24. Re: First Really New Electric Sheep Client in Two Years

    First, I want to stress that while the linux client is in beta, it works extremely well right now. I can't recommend the new version enough - the new variations in flam3 make this version almost a...
  25. Re: HOWTO: electricsheep screensaver with gnome-screensaver! (Dapper)

    I work with Scott Draves on the flame code and the screensaver (I'm the current flam3 render code maintainer). If you'd like to try the beta version of the screensaver to help us do debugging and...
